september 11th, 2001, when george bush made his first public remarks about the 9/11 attacks from where he was that day in sarasota, florida. the president was reading to a group of elementary school children when he was informed that they were underway. he continued reading to kids, but he did cut short the overall event and then explained why to the reporters who were there to recover him. >> today we have had a national tragedy. two airplanes have crashed into the world trade center in an apparent terrorist attack on our country. i have spoken to the vice president, to the governor of new york, to the director of the fbi, and i have ordered that the full resources of the federal government go to help the victims and their families and to conduct a full scale investigation to hunt down and to find those folks who committed this act. terrorism against our nation will not stand. >> the attacks had begun that morning at 8:46 a.m. you just saw president george bush speaking after the attacks began. the president is most remembered that day for the formal address from the oval office

:46 a.m. you just saw president george bush speaking after the attacks began. the president is most remembered that day for the formal address from the oval office 11 hours later. but in that 11-hour period between those statements, most of that time president bush was in the air. in the initial chaos of the unfolding attack as commercial air traffic was shut down, president bush was moved to florida and to louisiana and to nebraska. he was moved within florida to louisiana and nebraska. he spent the day in flight aboard air force one before finally getting to washington, d.c. that evening to give the oval office address. one of the technological changes that our government has made since the 9/11 attacks is that if god forbid something like that were to happen again, the president would no longer have to land in order to speak to the nation. in the new profile of the president in vanity fair he writes, quote, when they give you the tour, they show you the extra large doors to accommodate the president's coffin. they tell you about the boxes of m&m candies, the medical room prepared

bush. and you didn't see mitt romney's tax returns. and the fact of the matter is, it was george bush's policy that drove our country into the worst set of problems any president as inherited since franklin delano roosevelt. but facts are facts and we can't deny for 29 months in a row we have seen positive private sect job growth, foreclosures are better than before the president took office. this is hard. these are deep problems. what you're going to see in the next few days here in charlotte, san agenda and a vision for america's future, where our middle class is actually growing, becoming stronger, where we create opportunity. their only idea is ladling on bigger tax breaks for billionaires. we believe in greater security for our jobs, our homes and in our golden years. >> schieffer: stephanie cutter, do you see any openings here coming out of the republican convention. paul ryan is no longer the policy one of. he is the attack dog. did he leave any opening for you? >> i think the big opening they left for the president is they never said where they wanted to take the country

change america. our country is in trouble. and while george bush and dan quayle have been making excuses for deadlock and delay, people in other nations, inspired by the eternal promise of america, have torn down the berlin wall, brought communism to its knees and forced a racist government in south africa to turn away from apartheid. throughout the world, obstacles to liberty that many thought might stand forever turned out to simply be no match for men and women who decided in their hearts that their future could be much greater than their past would let them dream. their faith in the power of conscience and their confidence in the force of truth required a leap of the human spirit. can we say truthfully that their chance for change was better than ours? and yet, we face our own crisis of the spirit here and now in america. we're told we can no longer change; we've seen our better days. they even say, we're history. the cynics are having a field day because across this country millions of american families have been betrayed by a government out of touch with our values and beho

, george w. bush or george h.w. bush when speaking about similar matters. can you find any connection between what george w. bush used to say about compassionate conservatism, what george h.w. bush used to say about thousand points of light? >> no. and it was those ideas that compassionate conservatism that drew independent conservatives like me at the time to the republican party. interestingly, in his response on fox yesterday when he was trying to walk all this back, he kept talking about those people. i never heard the words those people from george w. bush or george h.w. bush or ronald reagan or bill clinton. those are the kinds of things that cause some concern. >> let's listen to george w. bush in 2002 talking how he believes people, everyone really deserves a chance. >> we believe that everyone deserves a chance. that everyone has value. that no insignificant person was ever born. we believe that all are diminished when any are hopeless. we are one people, committed to building a single nation of justice and opportunity. >> jonathan capeheart, in politics, it doesn't really ma

regard to george bush, it has been funny to me, because the democrats to bring out mr. clinton this week, and put him in primetime, and people cannot wait to hear what mr. clinton has to save. republicans did not mention george bush's name one time. what are we to make of the fact that mr. clinton is front and center? mr. bush was the invisible man? >> the clinton economy was the longest stretch of economic growth we have had since the second world war. unemployment did not plummeted. did 22 million new jobs were created. it was not that bill clinton created the jobs. he presided over an economy, and by raising taxes on the wealthiest members of our society, by maintaining an economic policy built from the ground up, he generated prosperity. republicans want to erase eight years of the bush and administration, because his policies did not work. did tax cuts to the wealthy i not work. good also, the weapons of mass destruction were never found in iraq. good his foreign policy centered on going into iraq and getting rid of those weapons of mass destruction was alive. his administratio

work. did we saw george bush have major tax cuts for the rich. we have fewer jobs after those bushwhacks cuts, and the median wage started to drop, ending in the crash of 2008. what we have seen in the clinton administration, of which are was very proud to be secretary of labor, that when we raise taxes at the top, when you expand infrastructure, when you build the economy from the bottom, you get a sustained recovery is, and you get a larger middle class with an upward mobility. >> "the new york times" did a story about the clinton administration when you were secretary of labor, and they found now 15 years later more women and children are falling into poverty than ever before, primarily because that program did not work so well, and peter was right about stepping down because he disagreed with that approach. your thoughts about about welfare program, since we are hearing so much about welfare once again. >> i was very much against the president's signing the bill. ihought it was the third bill the republicans sent. i thought he should hold out for a much better bill. the pr

right after their convention. in 2000, george bush and dick cheney left straight from their convention to ohio and michigan and illinois to tour it by train. in 2004, john kerry and john edwards did the same sort of cross-country tour through pennsylvania and west virginia and ohio and beyond. in 2008, barack obama and joe biden went straight from their convention to michigan and to pennsylvania and to ohio by bus. you're supposed to go out there and make it stick, right? it is post-convention momentum time. mitt romney today is not on a bus tour. or a train tour. or any kind of tour. when you get to be the presidential nominee of your party, you have what's called a press pool that follows you around at all times. it's basically a small pool of reporters who track your every movement all day long 24 hours a day. and then they distribute that information to the rest of the press. well, today the mitt romney press pool was informed at 10:00 a.m. that mr. romney was down for the day, that he had no events scheduled. the press was essentially told to stand down. romney watch is over for t
